We are a local group in San Diego for people who stutter and part of the National Stuttering Association.
The meetings are a safe and supportive place for people who stutter and want to meet and connect with others who stutter; their loved ones or anyone who wants to learn more about it (SLPs). We do not perform any kind of speech therapy or aim to cure stuttering.
Our adult group (18+) meets every last Tuesday of the month from 6-7.30pm either on Zoom or in Mission Valley Library. We also have social events once a month.
Our Family Group (age 7-17) is a safe place for children/teens who stutter and their families. The goal is to provide a supportive and fun environment where they can connect with their peers and where stuttering is accepted. The group meets every last Saturday of the month from 4-5.30 in Presidio Park (*subject to change, please contact us for latest meeting information).
Adult and Family group leader
Kaja is originally from Slovenia and came to San Diego in 2016. She is currently the group leader of the adult and family National Stuttering Association (NSA) chapter in San Diego. She has been stuttering since the age of 5. Stuttering used to be her biggest fear and something she was ashamed of. Joining the NSA changed her view on stuttering and taught her how to accept and live as a person who stutters. She is passionate about stuttering advocacy, education and fostering a world where stuttering is viewed as normal and accepted. In her free time, she loves to surf and travel.
Family group co-leader
Isabell is a transplant to Southern California and enjoys travelling, eating good food, and exploring the outdoors. She shares her passion for the natural world through her work as a wildlife educator. One of the many things she wishes to do in her life is to be the sort of person that she would’ve wanted to look up to as a child. A person who stutters and still puts themselves out in front of the world, determined to not keep quiet.
